In the games
When the duo is first shown in Gates to Infinity, only Umbreon appears, who is a mysterious figure running in Post Town. Umbreon eventually ends up gets severely injured, but more like exhaustion from running. He is then taken to Swanna's Shop to rest up. Later on, the Pokémon in Post town ask Umbreon why he went to the town, but couldn't provide answers yet. One Pokémon, Virizion, reveals she met Umbreon and Espeon once before at the Great Glacier and reveals they are Dungeon Researchers. The Partner Pokémon then wonders where Espeon is, but doesn't get an answer due to Umbreon being too injured to speak.
The next day, Umbreon forces himself to get out of Post Town, but still needs to recover from his injuries. When asked why he is rushing to leave the town, he reveals he were attacked by a group of Pokémon and lost Espeon due to the duo going diffrent ways. He says the duo was attacked because they had Entercards, which has something to do with the mysteries of powers in certain areas. After making the Pokémon listening to the story fall asleep, he goes outside and shows them what the Entercards could do. When done with the demonstration, he reveals a Magnagate, a portal to a dungeon. He notes it is unfinished because two other Entercards are with Espeon. The Player's team then go and rescue Espeon from the bad Pokémon and head towards the Crags of Lament.
When the player get to the middle of the dungeon, Espeon is running from two Pokèmon, whom tell her to look for them. Espeon refused to go after them and continues running. Eventually, when the player reaches the end of the dungeon, Espeon gets surrounded by the bad Pokémon, who are revealed to be Purugly and Toxicroak. The duo gets Espeon cornered and takes her bag, which is empty. The duo then demands Espeon to tell them where she put the Entercards. The player then arrives and battles Purugly and Toxicroak. The duo loses and flees from the player's team. Espeon walks slowly to the team with minor injuries. She thanks the player and and goes with them back to Post Town.
Umbreon and Espeon are then reunited and thank everyone in Post town. When they wonder why Purugly and Toxicroak would take the Entercards, they mention the thieves might go to the Great Glacier, causing everyone in town to get shocked. The duo then realizes they didn't explain their jobs yet. They tell everyone that they spent their careers studying the Great Glacier, because of the Great Crystal in deep Great Glacier. They plan to use the Entercards to create a dungeon leading beyond the crevasse. Umbreon states it might be too late because he knows Espeon doesn't have her Entercards due to the look of things. Umbreon thinks Purugly and Toxicroak stole them, but Espeon scolds him for jumping to conclusions. Even though the Entercards weren't stolen, Espeon regrets doing what she did to save the Entercards.
Shortly after, a Swadloon goes to Espeon and hands her Entercards she gave to him for safe keeping. Espeon becomes glad Swadloon is safe and then breaks down crying. Leavanny, Swadloon's mother asks why would her son would be in danger. Espeon reveals she was headed for Post town, but due to Purugly and Toxicroak always being one step ahead of her, she buried her items in Inflora Forest. Later on, Swadloon discovers the Entercards, causing Espeon to panic. Espeon desides to give him a red stone she buried with her Entercards if Swadloon kept an eye on the cards until she went to pick them up. Swadloon keeps his promise and Espeon leaves after hearing a rustle. Shortly after realizing her mistake, Espeon heads back to Inflora Forest. However, Swadloon already left and she was too late.
Leavanny and Swadloon try to stop Espeon from crying because she had no choice but to leave the Entercards with Swadloon. Leavanny tells Espeon that she is proud of both her and Swadloon for keeping their word. She remains crying and Umbreon is relieved the Entercards are safe. Umbreon desides it is best for both of them to remain in Post Town since they are likely to get targeted again and they still need to recover from their injures. Swanna lets them stay in Post Town, but they still need to pay their bills.
The next day, The duo meet up with Vizirion on top of a hill. The Player's team see them and the duo tells them they feel a lot better thanks to everyone helping out, but they can't afford to waste any time because they are nearly complete with their research. The partner pokèmon asks if they can help out Espeon and Umbreon with their research. The duo is glad they want to help, but the night before, they desided to join the player's team to repay the player and use their strength to achieve their dream. They also feel that since the Great Glacier is an unexplored dungeon, they might not be able to return back without them. The player lets them join the team, but Umbreon and Espeon say they can't join right away because they are nearly finished with their research. The player's partner is okay with this, as it felt the same way. Everyone then continues with their day.
